Kirkuk Governor's Statement in Support of a Federal System in Syria

"Federalism in Syria is a significant step towards achieving Democracy in Syria and preventing breakup of the state. I would like to call on the international community, especially the neighboring countries to support the newly established federal entity in Northern Syria (Rojava) as they did with Federal Region of Kurdistan (KRG) established in 1992. The Peshmerga forces of the KRG have proven to be the most effective force in fighting ISIS in Iraq, just as the People's Protection Units (YPG) have been in Syria."

Dr. Najmaldin Karim
Governor of Kirkuk
